Tip #1: Backing up data daily is not enough. Keep your most important documents in a safe that has been tested and listed by UL (Underwriters Laboratories) as being resistant to fire, heat, burglary tools and torches.

Tip #3: Organizations are strongly urged to check the efficiency or shortcomings of their “in-case-of-disaster” plans.
